A lot of you have been very busy this week, patching ESX hosts(That would be you Jason ;-)) and hopefully reading all the excellent articles being aggregated on Planet V12n...
Duncan Epping - CPU/MEM Reservation Behavior The above paragraph is a bit misleading , as it seems to imply that a VM has to access its full reservation. What it should really say is “Memory which is protected by a reservation will not be reclaimed by ballooning or Host-level swapping even if it becomes idle,” and “Physical machine memory will not be allocated to the VM until the VM accesses virtual RAM needing physical RAM backing.” Then that pRAM is protected by the reservation and won’t be reclaimed by ballooning or .vswp-file swapping. If there is any .vswp memory at all as no .vswp is created when the reservation is equal to the provisioned memory.
Scott Lowe - PXE Booting VMware ESX 4.0 Next, you’ll need the PXE boot files. Specifically, you’ll need the menu.c32 and pxelinux.0 files. These files are not on the DVD ISO image; you’ll have to download Syslinux from this web site. Once you download Syslinux, extract the files into a temporary directory. You’ll find menu.c32 in the com32/menu folder; you’ll find pxelinux.0 in the core folder. Copy both of these files, along with vmlinuz and initrd.img, into the root directory of the TFTP server. (If you don’t know the root directory of the TFTP server, double-check its configuration.)
Stu Radnidge - Challenge Convention & Garbage In / Garbage Out & Engage Support Early & Engage Support Early The notion of GIGO is of course much older than I am, but it’s one of those concepts that is timeless. In relation to Cloud, it’s more pertinent than ever. The marketing hype would have you believe that Cloud is a panacea, and many people hawking their wares artfully dodge the subject of your existing tools and processes. But ignore these at your own peril. The COO of the company I work for has a great quote, which goes something like “God made the earth in 6 days, because he started with a clean slate.”. The same is true of internal Cloud (or whatever you want to call it – I’m going to call it that for the sake of convenience) – you could probably nail down the platform code and functionality that you want to launch with in a few weeks, but making the requisite changes to existing processes and integrating with existing tools in your environment is what will take the lion’s share of time to address.
Luc Dekens - Counter the self-aware VUM Today there was quite a bit of activity on Twitter following Jason Boche’s blog post titled VMware Update Manager Becomes Self-Aware. The problem Jason discovered was that the VUM skipped the guests which are hosting the VUM server and the vCenter server. As a consequence you can not select a cluster, select “remediate” and go out for lunch anymore. The resolution was a rather cumbersome and error prone manual procedure. But of course PowerCLI can help the human vSphere administrator...
Chris Wolf - RSA, Intel, and VMware Take a Big Step Forward in Cloud Security In the past, I have talked about this security dilemma in a couple of couple of key areas. First, we need a standardized set of cloud isolation levels. We also need standard metadata (either de facto or industry standard) so that third party audit tools can properly query an application’s relationship to cloud security policy in relation to virtual and physical controls that are in place. I covered those issues in more depth in the post “The Cloud Mystery Machine: Metadata Standards.” In addition, virtual resources need to be able to answer the question “Where are you?” That applies to both the runtime location and data location. It’s important to ensure that data privacy and governance concerns are met, and regulatory compliance issues such as data export restrictions are satisfied.

26.09.2013 The End of the Google Summer of Code The GSoC coding period has ended last Monday. In this blog post, I will summarize what I have done during the summer, to give a general idea of what you can expect from a future version of Nepomuk, if my work is accepted by the Nepomuk maintainers. The source code of the first two projects is available in the steckdenis-gsoc2013 branches of the nepomuk-core and nepomuk-widgets Git repositories. The browser plugin can be found in the scratch/dsteckelmacher/nepomukintegration.git scratch repository.

Thanks to the huge engagement of Alexander Dymo we will meet from the 19th to 26th April 2009. The meeting will take place at Alexander’s university, the national university of shipbuilding in Odessa, Ukraine. Thanks to the people there responsible for making this sprint possible by providing us with the premises, internet, power etc. Since this is my very first Hack Sprint and considering that I only recently started contributing to KDE in general and KDevelop in particular I am very excited. The topics I will plan to hack on include (...14.07.2010 Mario Fux (unormal): KDE work day 1 - xml and nepomuk I’m sitting in the train from Zurich to Burgdorf (Switzerland) and want to report, dear reader, about my first week of KDE (or atm qt) development. It was not really as I planned it, I did not work a whole day on qt and kde, but several hours during the week. As I told you last week my first week was about an xml indenter. Some years ago when I started to track routes for OpenStreetMap.org my Garmin GPS device spat out bad formatted xml (GPX) files. Bad means here that all of the content was on one line and as I sometimes wanted to extract single tracks me and the dear editor (Kwrite or ...15.01.2009 Aaron Seigo (aseigo): building a community around your F/OSS project Today has turned into another writing day for me. Huzzah! I started going through my list of blog-posts-I've-not-yet-written and decided to punctuate the day with a couple of them. So let's talk a bit about building a community around your F/OSS project.Usual disclaimers apply: this is what works for me, it may not work for you; I could be completely insane and talking about my posterior; I probably am just repeating what other people have said elsewhere; I'm going to be hypocritical in places by giving advice that I don't follow overly well myself. So there.Onwards!Why It MattersIt is not unc...27.01.2010 Troy Unrau: Camp KDE coverage summary Hi guys, I was preparing this summary of blogs and other coverage of Camp KDE to forward to our sponsors to show the activity occurring at the event. I figured I'd share it with the planet, if you folks are interested. If blogging is a measure of productivity, we certainly set the bar high. :) Dot.kde.org Posts (during and around the event only):http://dot.kde.org/2010/01/16/camp-kde-about-starthttp://dot.kde.org/2010/01/17/day-one-camp-kde-2010http://dot.kde.org/2010/01/21/camp-kde-2010-continues-more-talkshttp://dot.kde.org/2010/01/21/camp-kde-day-three-technical-talks-summarieshttp://dot.kd...16.02.2010 Aurelien Gateau: A week in Portland, Oregon I spent the first week of February in Portland, where I attended Canonical Platform Sprint for Ubuntu Lucid.

My goal for the last week was to write a very simple Qt application showing the power of Grantlee. The idea was to simulate that I am reading a message in Kmail and I want to change the theme again and again. You can take a look at the code in the soc-pim branch or: svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/work/soc-pim/kdepim/examples/mail_grantl...18.05.2008 Michael Pyne (mpyne): Usability in interfaces So on an article on a programming weblog. The topic of the article was a group that decided to make a copy of Funpidgin and was essentially created because the people making the copy feel the Pidgin development team are not listening to the needs of their users. Celeste Lyn Paul, one of the KDE team’s usability designers (the group that tries to make the software we make actually usable by the end user) a comment about the amount of issues that people bring in the name of usability. He then later posted a S5W nuclear reactor plant.

And since then, a lot of things changed in my life and on the web. And one of those is that I got a new, and my first serious job back in June last year. So, back in June ‘07 I started working at the funny called company FOSDEM took place at the free university of Brussels, Belgium. After some bad experiences with hostels the previous years I subscribed to the organised KDE accomodation by Lydia Pintscher (Quassel).

Make things fun to work with, easy, organic. It’s something we should strive for, and something that I have strove for in my code; sexy code is a hell of a lot more fullfilling than ugly hacks.
